Steps to create the Theme:
- Copy any theme from your mobile to the computer.
- Rename your theme and change its extension to “.rar” [Example: “lemmysquatting.nth” to “lemmysquatting.rar“] Now right-click on the renamed file and extract its content to an empty folder.
- Now, check which image is used for what purpose [check the theme on mobile].
- Next, replace the images and ringtones that you want to use in your theme with your favorite
images and ringtones. make sure you don’t change the name of the image or sound.[rename
your images to the same same as the existing image in the theme do the same for ringtones too].
- Basically, the folder contains all the info of the theme as it is. only the content has changed not the name. so the file named theme descriptor will take the new files for your theme.
- Now, Now right-click anywhere in the folder’s empty space and select the option “Add to
lemmysquatting.rar”. Once you do this, you will have a lemmysquatting.rar in the same folder.
- Finally, rename the file to “watertheme.nth” from “lemmysquatting.rar“.
- You’re Done. copy the theme to your phone and test it…!!
